12 oz. bottle to a pint glass...
A nice clear golden orange in color with minimal head even though I poured with some vigor??? Decent lacing, but nothing to brag about. A moderate hop smell from the glass with the floral notes standing out the most. I noticed a even distribution of malts to hops in the nose. In the mouth is where this beer really shines. Great hop taste here... floral and piney with a touch of citrus. Well rounded with perhaps a malted barley influence? Moderately carbonated with a resinous feel in the mouth. Very drinkable even at 7.0 ABV. A good, well rounded Cali IPA.

Poured from a 12 oz can (gasp) into a tulip.
A - Deep amber with about a finger of creamy light tan head. Sporadic lacing down the glass.
S - Floral and citrusy hops. I thought it would be a little more in your face (or nose), though.
T - Bitter earthy hops, but well balanced and a bright finish.
M - Full bodied up front but finishes clean and dry like an IPA should.
O - Whereas some west coast IPAs go for nothing but hop flavor and aroma, this is really well balanced while still maintaining the signature floral hop notes.

3.15/5 rDev -21.4%

355ml bottle. Shaker glass. Orangish amber color headed by white & wide crown. Piney, citric –orange & grapefruit- aromas, slight caramel malt & floral notes. Bitter upfront yields to a gentle sweet toasted flavor. Medium body. Moderate to soft carbonation. Honey hues in the middle are swept out by hoppiness that lingers into an extended bitter finish.
